The Hockey Show - Episode Sixty

The Hockey Show hits the airwaves tonight with a pile of stuff to discuss after missing out on a bunch of chatter from last week as we helped UMFM raise a little money with Pledge-O-Rama. We'll be back with our usual banter as Beans and I, along with new producer Columbus, discuss the Jets and their recent four-game roadtrip and the problems seen on the road, the Manitoba Bisons and their latest battles with the Calgary Dinos, the usual Russian Roundup as we look at the players and news from the KHL, and we'll toss in some John Scott chatter, some Vanek-for-Moulson thoughts, and much more.

Of course, the big news story today is Semyon Varlamov's arrest. Varlamov turned himself into Denver police yesterday around 6pm after a warrant was issued for his arrest concerning charges of kidnapping and third-degree assault in what authorities are calling a domestic violence incident. Denver police revealed little in terms of details, but did state that the victim was "someone who Varlamov was in an intimate relationship with". New details are emerging today as the attorney for the accuser told CBS 4 Denver that Varlamov allegedly threw the woman into a wall and began to stomp on her. He also added that this wasn't the first time that 25-year old netminder had allegedly assaulted the woman. And for you conspiracy theorists out there, a politician in Russia is now calling the arrest into question as it weakens the Russian hockey team. Seriously. We'll talk about all of this tonight on the show!

If you'd like to weigh in on any of these topics or any other hockey topic, feel free to give us a call at (204) 269-UMFM (269-8636). I'll have my phone handy for any tweets you wanna toss our way, and you can hit me up at @TeebzHBIC. The Hockey Show is live on the air at 5:30pm CT on 101.5 UMFM! Join us for some hockey chatter!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
